Spider-Man 4 Has To Break The Biggest MCU Spidey Trend

July 20, 2022 0 Comments

Spider-Man’s run in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has followed a very specific trend in its title and overall theme, but after the events of
Spider-Man: No Way Home,
Spider-Man 4 has to break this trend. As one of the most popular characters from Marvel Comics, Spider-Man was one superhero that the audience wanted to see joining the MCU, and after a deal between Sony and Marvel, Spider-Man made his MCU debut in
Captain America: Civil War when he was recruited by Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) to join his team.,After fighting with the biggest MCU heroes at the time, Spider-Man (Tom Holland) returned to star in his first solo movie in this universe.
Spider-Man: Homecoming skipped the origin story of the web-slinger and instead caught up with him after the events of
Civil War, as Peter did his best to juggle life in high school and his new superhero duties. Spider-Man joined the rest of the MCU’s heroes in
Avengers: Infinity War and
Avengers: Endgame before going on a second solo adventure in
Spider-Man: Far From Home, where he came across Quentin Beck/Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), who at the end framed him for his murder and revealed his identity to the whole world.,Related: Spider-Man 4’s Black Cat Debut Solves A No Way Home Problem,This big twist led Peter to ask Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) to cast a spell that would make everyone forget he’s Spider-Man in
Spider-Man: No Way Home, but the spell was botched, and instead it opened the gates to the multiverse, letting villains from past
Spider-Man movies into the MCU. In order to fix this, Spider-Man asked Strange to cast one final spell that would make the world forget about Peter Parker, and so by the end of
No Way Home, Peter was seen starting a new life without his friends and those closest to him. This means that, if
Spider-Man 4 happens, it will have to break a big MCU Spider-Man trend: having “Home” as part of its title and overall theme.,Spider-Man’s “Home” trilogy in the MCU wasn’t about exploring the origins of the web-slinger as previous movies did but instead following his development from a local hero to a superhero known worldwide and an ally of the Avengers. Spider-Man’s MCU trilogy had a “home” theme that went beyond each movie’s title:
Homecoming was his first solo adventure as part of this universe and his return home after fighting alongside Team Iron Man in Germany,
Far From Home saw Spider-Man fighting Mysterio in Europe, and
No Way Home left Peter without a home and starting all over again completely alone. With Aunt May gone, and his friends, fellow heroes, and the rest of the world not remembering who he is, Peter is starting a new chapter in his life, so
Spider-Man 4 should leave “Home” behind to better represent the start of a new trilogy.,The next
Spider-Man trilogy will see a more mature Spidey dealing with the consequences of his actions and decisions in
No Way Home (and whatever massive events happen in the MCU after that that could affect his future) while building a new life and new relationships, both with new people and with his old friends, who now have no idea who he is.
Spider-Man 4 will be a new start for Peter Parker, and that means breaking the MCU’s biggest Spidey trend to make room for a new chapter in his story – and, possibly, a new trend too.,Next: Why MCU Spider-Man 4 Isn’t As Exciting As Garfield’s Amazing Spider-Man 3
